Introducing the Revolutionary RISA: Tailoring Retirement Strategies to Individual Preferences

April 26, 2024

As financial advisors, our primary goal at Gordon Asset Management, LLC is to ensure that every aspect of financial planning is personalized and directly aligned with our clients' unique life goals and financial situations. This commitment to tailored financial advice leads us to introduce an innovative tool that's set to transform retirement planning: the Retirement Income Style Awareness (RISA).

Understanding the RISA

Life is rarely optimized on a spreadsheet; it unfolds according to personal aspirations and decisions. The same goes for retirement planning. The RISA framework is designed to personalize retirement income strategies by focusing on individual preferences and styles, thereby enhancing both professional success and personal fulfillment.

RISA categorizes retirement planning into four broad strategies:

  1. Total Return: Ideal for those who prefer drawing income from a diversified investment portfolio.
  2. Income Protection: Suited for individuals seeking security through lifetime income annuities.
  3. Risk Wrap: Combines investment growth potential with guaranteed lifetime income benefits.
  4. Time Segmentation: Uses different asset classes for short, medium, and long-term needs, providing flexibility and safety.


Traditional approaches to retirement planning often employ a one-size-fits-all strategy, which might not align with everyone's unique financial needs or comfort levels with risk. RISA offers a nuanced approach that begins with understanding the individual's retirement income style through a set of meticulously designed questions. This not only helps in identifying the most comfortable retirement strategy for our clients but also enhances their confidence and satisfaction in the retirement planning process.
